The ACR Research and Education Foundation (REF) ensures the future of rheumatology by guaranteeing that there will be well-trained rheumatologists and rheumatology health professionals to provide quality care to the patients who need it.
To achieve this, the REF maintains an extensive awards and grants program with research, training and education opportunities for medical students, fellows, clinicians, researchers, health professionals, and academic institutions.
The REF is pleased to announce that it has just awarded approximately $5 million in grants and awards to nearly 150 recipients, both individuals and institutions. These recipients will begin their award terms in July. Visit www.rheumatology.org/REF to view a complete list of recipients by award type.
